What causes low blood pressure?

I have brought my daughter to the er for a migraine. They gave her compazine and benedryl. Cat scan and blood work are clear. Her blood pressure has dropped severly. Running 90/33 and 101/29. The dr. Isn't concerned about the bp but 29 seems awfully low doesn't it?

Hello.
Ma'am it's natural on your part to be concerned but please don't focus on numbers.How old is your child? if she is not comfortable then this should be investigated and treated but in case she is feeling alright then there's no need to treat the numbers.
